‘Soup’er Recipe: Tuna Casserole

I love an old fashioned tuna casserole for dinner. Although this is not a soup recipe I’m still including it with my ‘soup’er recipes as it uses a can of condensed soup.

  • 2 cans of tuna
  • 1 cup of green beans or peas
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/12 to 2 cups pasta, I use gluten free as my choice
  • 1/12 to 2 cups of shredded cheese
  • optional topping of bread crumbs or crushed potato chips

  • bake at 400 F for 20-25 minutes
  • add topping for the last 10 minutes or so

Frequently instead of the condensed soup I make my own white sauce and add cheese and fresh mushrooms. This way I can control the amount of salt as I find tinned soups do have lots of salt and other ingredients with big long names that I don’t really know what they are. This way takes a bit longer.

  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • about 1 cup breadcrumbs, I use gluten free

Mix bread crumbs with melted butter for a topping.

Another option is to add about 1 cup of crushed potato chips to the top. My mom always made it this way and to me this makes it an old fashioned meal.

I like to serve my tuna casserole with plain salad greens sprinkled with parmesan cheese. You can add whatever type of dressing your prefer. This time I also added a serving of chick peas.

As I’m the only one that likes tuna casserole I always freeze portions of it for a later time.

I’m sharing with Souper Sunday, where you can link up your soup, stew, chili, soupy curries, salad, or sandwich dish. I hope this casserole recipe will fit the requirements, as it uses prepared soup and has a green salad for the side.

    Tuna casserole looks good but I am not a tuna lover and Dana isn’t either. crushed chips sound like a good topping for a change.
    Mild and now, -2c only going up to +2c

      I’m the only one that likes tuna casserole, so I always make it and freeze portions just for me. Yet hubby loves tuna sandwiches. Mild here too, but we are getting wet snow that won’t accumulate.

    I love a good classic tuna casserole. My mom used to use potato chips too, or sometimes those jackstraw potato chips.

    Thanks for sharing with Souper Sundays at Kahakai Kitchen this week.
